For those interested, here is a link to that book: Computability is thus a branch of mathematics which is of relevance also to computer scientists and philosophers. Amazon Inspire Digital Educational Resources.

In fact, I’ve started reading the Hartley Rogers text on Wed 24Jul13, while keeping the Cutland on hand during that read. It covers basic aspects of recursion theory, Godel numbering, the structure of recursive and recursively enumerable sets, and even a brief and quite sketchy foray into complexity results at the end.

This uniqueness of the URM model also means it is independent of the Chomsky hierarchy of language classes that run on those automata just mentioned.

Chapter 11, my final one, was quite unusual recurrsive ‘sort of’ getting into anthropology, psychology, and damaging enemy computers in war, inspired by the seemingly quite weak 2nd recursion theorem. The author uses unlimited register machines thdory his computing model, then shows equivalence with this model and other modelssuch as the Turing machine. The reader should find more advanced topics, introdhction Godel’s Incompleteness Theorem, the Recursion Theorem’s, and Reducibility to be quite accessible.
